Vastavam web: US Vice President Mike Pence has said that Pakistan has taken an “important” step in fight against terrorism by helping secure the release of a Canadian-American family abducted by the Haqqani networks five years ago.American citizen Caitlan Coleman and her Canadian husband Joshua Boyle along with their three children were rescued from the Haqqani network on Thursday after an operation by Pakistani forces.Pence’s comments on Pakistan came as he listed out some of the key achievements of the Trump administration at the international stage.
While some critics engage in empty rhetoric and baseless attacks, thanks to the President’s leadership, the ISIS is on the run, North Korea is isolated as never before, and our NATO allies are doing more to pay their fair share for our common defence, he added.US President DonalsTrump had slammed Pakistan for its continued support to terrorist groups and warned Islamabad of consequences if it continues to do so.
“Today, we join the Boyle family in rejoicing over the long-awaited return to Canada of their loved ones,” said Global Affairs Canada, a department in the Canadian government that manages Canada’s diplomatic and consular relations.However, some of the well-known counter terrorism experts appeared to be sceptical of Pakistan’s move given its past history.”Pakistan’s aid in release of hostages is a classic Pakistani move. Pakistan has a history of making high-profile arrests before big meetings,” said Bill Roggio, editor of Lon War Journal.
